Cunningham and his teammates Hakeem Abdul-Saboor, Christopher Kinney, and Sam Michener, told us that the secret of their success is how close they are as teammates.

“If you can compete and not have to think, is our greatest asset. I know exactly what Hakeem is going to do the left side, which is exactly what Chris is going to do the right side, and how Nick looks when he’s driving,” the team’s brakeman Michener tells us. “So we can react and not think. It makes us faster.”

“If you’re on the grass, we all know that we have each other’s back,” Abdul-Saboor shared.

Cunningham concluded, “We are pushing as a good cohesive unit and if it will click and you’ll see the start times, that is when we start getting a little more excited and a little kind of redundant.”
